Calcinosis tumoral de rodilla
Restrepo,Juan Pablo; Molina,María del Pilar;
Acta Medica Colombiana , 2010,
Abstract: tumoral calcinosis or teutschlander syndrome is a rare and benign condition characterized by the presence of calcified masses around the hip, elbow, and less frequently feet, ankles and knees. it is believed that there is a genetic alteration in galnt3 and fgf23 which regulate the renal absorption of phosphate. usually it is an asymptomatic lesion and occasionally it produces symptoms of compression to peripheral tissues. imaging permits the diagnosis. there is no successful medical treatment and surgical excision is recommended although recurrences are frequent (acta med colomb 2010; 35: 185-186).

Abstract: Soft tissue calcinosis is a common radiographic finding, which may be related to different types of pathological processes. Multimodality imaging, combined with analysis of clinical and laboratory data, plays an important role for the differential diagnosis of these conditions. Conventional radiography is considered the first line approach to soft tissue calcinosis; CT and MRI may provide further information to better characterize calcified deposits. Imaging may help to distinguish metabolic calcification, such as primary tumoral calcinosis and the secondary one (associated with acquired disorders of calcium or phosphate regulation), from dystrophic calcification, which is associated to normal blood values of phosphate. The sedimentation sign typical of tumoral calcinosis has been demonstrated by plain film radiography, CT, MRI, and, more recently, by ultrasonography. Other types of soft tissue calcinosis may have a degenerative, metaplastic or neoplastic origin, and their characterization strongly relies on multimodality imaging.

Abstract: Se presenta el caso de un paciente de 2 a os de edad, de la raza blanca, sexo femenino, que fue valorada en su provincia de procedencia por presentar nódulos cutáneos de localización múltiple en los miembros inferiores y abdomen, y fue remitida al Hospital Pediátrico Juan M. Márquez . En las radiografías de las extremidades inferiores se observaron calcificaciones en partes blandas y la biopsia informó nódulos subepidérmicos calcificados. En la anamnesis no se encontraron antecedentes de traumatismos en la zona ni de consumo de fármacos ricos en calcio o fósforo. La exploración física fue normal, salvo las lesiones previamente descritas. Se realizaron estudios para determinar alguna enfermedad subyacente que pudiera justificar este cuadro clínico, pero no se constataron causas evidentes. Dado que la calcicosis cutánea de la paciente no es secundaria a afecciones sistémicas, ni se evidencian alteraciones metabólicas ni de otro tipo, se estableció el diagnóstico de calcinosis cutánea localizada idiopática. This is the case of a white female patient aged 2, assessed in its origin province due to presence of cutaneous nodules of multiple localizations in lower limbs and in abdomen, referred to "Juan Manuel Márquez" Children Hospital. Lower limbs X-rays showed soft tissues calcifications and a biopsy confirmed the presence of calcified subepidermal nodules. In anamnesis there were neither traumata backgrounds in the area nor consumption of drugs rich in calcium and phosphorus. The physical examination was normal except the above mentioned lesions. Studies to determine some underlying disease that could justify this clinical picture were conducted but without obvious causes. Since the cutaneous Calcinosis is not secondary to systemic affections and there is not metabolic alterations or of other type, diagnosis con idiopathic localized cutaneous calcinosis was made.

Abstract: Calcinosis cutis is an uncommon disorder caused by an abnormal deposit of calcium phosphate in the skin in various parts of the body. Four main types of calcinosis cutis have been recognized according to etiology: associated with localized or widespread tissue changes or damage (dystrophic calcification), that associated with an abnormal calcium and phosphorus metabolism (metastatic calcification), not associated with any tissue damage or demonstrable metabolic disorder (idiopathic calcification), and Iatrogenic. Very few cases of idiopathic calcinosis cutis are reported in early childhood in the literature. We report one such case of idiopathic calcinosis cutis over elbow in a 12-year-old female child. Histological examinations of the lesions resected in this case reveal calcium deposits in the dermis, surrounded by foreign body giant cells. Idiopathic calcinosis cutis is a rare phenomenon and occurs in the absence of known tissue injury or systemic metabolic defect. It is important to delineate it from other calcification disorders for further plan of management. Medical therapy in calcinosis cutis is of limited benefit in pediatric age group and poses a challenging problem of postsurgical management. 1. Introduction Calcinosis cutis is a term used to describe a group of disorders in which calcium deposits form in the skin. Virchow initially described calcinosis cutis in 1855 [1]. Calcinosis cutis is classified into 4 major types according to etiology: dystrophic, metastatic, iatrogenic, and idiopathic [1]. Dystrophic calcinosis is calcification associated with infection, inflammatory processes, cutaneous neoplasm, or connective tissue diseases [2, 3]. Idiopathic calcinosis cutis is cutaneous calcification of unknown cause with normal serum calcium [4]. Subepidermal calcified nodule and tumoral calcinosis are idiopathic forms of calcification. Metastatic calcification results from elevated serum levels of calcium or phosphorus [5]. Iatrogenic and traumatic calcinosis are those types which are associated with medical procedures [5]. A few rare types have been variably classified as dystrophic or idiopathic [6]. These include calcinosis cutis circumscripta, calcinosis cutis universalis, tumoral calcinosis, and transplant-associated calcinosis cutis [6]. Calcinosis cutis with Raynaud’s phenomenon, oesophageal dysmotility, sclerodactyly, and telangiectasia is referred to as CREST syndrome [7–9]. The term “idiopathic calcinosis” is used when neither local tissue injury nor systemic metabolic disorder can be demonstrated [4]. Very few cases of idiopathic

Abstract: A 22-year-old male patient presented with multiple swellings over elbows and knees and a sinus over the right elbow discharging chalky white material. Skin biopsy of the swelling demonstrated calcium deposition in dermis and subcutis. There was no evidence of connective tissue disorder or abnormal mineral metabolism. Hence it was concluded as idiopathic calcinosis cutis and is reported for its interesting presentation.

Abstract: Usual type of dystrophic calcinosis cutis is described in six females in the perimentopausal age group with the lesions in the hip region along with their clinical, biochemical, histological and radiological features. The probable causes of calcinosis are discussed. This is the first report of dystrophic calcinosis of this kind can aptly be called idiopathic perimenopausal dystrophic calcinosis cutis.

Journal of Medical and Allied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: A 7 year old boy presented with multiple, raised, hard nodules of varying sizes over both elbows and right knee and small milia like lesions over the chin. Serum levels of calcium, phosphorus and uric acid were normal. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) followed by excisional biopsy was done. A final diagnosis of calcinosis cutis was made based on histopathological and clinical findings. This is a rare case of mixed variants/subtypes-subepidermal calcified nodules and milia like lesions.
